Encounters with Angels (Part #1) is the first of two sermons devoted to scrutinizing Biblical examples of people that dealt with literal angels. By looking at the stories of Hagar, Lot, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Balaam, Joshua, Gideon, Samson’s mother and Elijah (with their specific dealings concerning Yahweh’s angelic host) the listener can compare these feats to that of men and “entertain angels” as instructed.
Obadiah (Part #2) concludes our two-part examination of the minor prophet’s condemnation of the Edomites by explaining several more reasons Yahweh must destroy them and who exactly He uses to accomplish their demolition. Esau attempted to murder his brother Jacob / Israel thus his attempts at thwarting the Will of Yahweh is rewarded with flame and fire in “the great and terrible Day of the Lord.”
Obadiah (Part #1) begins our two-part examination of the minor prophet by establishing the background of Esau and his cursed Edomite offspring. Yahweh hates Edom and loves Israel! Why? Obadiah’s intention was to condense several prophecies concerning Esau (and his many sins against his brother Jacob) during “the Day of the Lord” so faithful Christians can be assured our enemy will be destroyed.
